    Boot problem in Redhat 9


    I have installed Redhat 9 on my SATA my hd. My hd is connected to a Silicon Image controller. The problem is that I can't boot from it! I can only boot if I use a boot floppy and write hde=noprobe hdg=noprobe. How can I add this to my boot loader Grub?

    You should be able to append that at the end of the kernel line in your grub.conf:

    Code:
    kernel /boot/bzImage-2.6.7-gentoo root=/dev/hda3 video=vesafb:ywrap,mtrr,1024x768@80 vga=0x317 hde=noprobe hdg=noprobe
    Like that.
